London, 16 December 2020:
At a Tripoli ceremony yesterday, Libya’s General Information Authority (GIA) issued the fifth National Report on Human Development of 2018, entitled “Challenges to Development in Libya”.
The report addressed the possible paths of future Libyan human development and efforts towards overcoming challenges, adopting a model of what is known as the development state, upgrading living standards, services and facilities, education systems, social welfare, health systems, social security networks, justice, equity, security and national sovereignty.
These efforts will aim at improving economic performance and improve quality both in its productive components and at the level of social and economic services for citizens, the GIA explained.
The report contains six chapters:
- The reality of development performance in the Libyan economy
- Population and development challenges
- Political and administrative stability
- Resources and reconstruction and development challenges,
- Social conditions and challenges of development
- Knowledge construction
The GIA said it has issued four economic reports despite the difficult circumstances facing the Authority. It hoped that this latest report, prepared by a group of Libyan experts, will be a scientific and economic reference that will benefit financial institutions and decision makers to support state sectors and the stability of the citizen’s livelihoods and to increase the competitiveness of the Libyan state in international reports.
